Sunday at Point Reyes

Point Reyes is a magical bit of the California coast. I took Tabitha there for our first afternoon together. I was stopping in at Petes for an afternoon coffee, where we met, I asked if she wanted to go to the beach. We were retracing our path and showing our kids one of the most beautiful places we know of.

The kids loved it. Toly was scared of the big noisy surf.

The surf was huge and crashing on the shore. Tristan and Kassi began running toward the retreating wave then running up the beach.

I closely monitored their frolicking.

Rome mostly stayed far back from the scary waves.

Many calories were spent.

The wave just after this one was huge and pummeled everyone.

Tristan remained fearless.

occasionally a huge wave would crash all the way up the beach. There was no safely dry place.

Tristan was drenched.

and covered in sand

I consoled Toly and Rome after the big pummeling.

Luckily we read this sign on the way out otherwise we'd have probably stayed on the bluff.

Love the sign at the end ;).

We love our beach here. It's such a magical place. A couple of weeks ago, late in the evening, I went to the beach and took off my shoes for a barefooted winter beach walk ... which in Maine isn't the same as in California ;). It was incredible, and the beach was totally deserted - just me and the surf. So, awesome!

I don't know how you guys feel about your ocean, but I know it would be really tough for me to move away from mine ;).
